Not All Angels Know How To Fly

Some angels fly on wispy wings
And play on sunlit clouds
Some angels soar in skies of blue
High above earth's crowds

Some angels glide on gusts of wind
Between the snow capped mountains
Some have their image cast in stone
Adorning concrete fountains

Some angels sport halos of gold
But yet, there are some others
Not blessed with wings, halos, or flight
God simply made them mothers


HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY

This is a nice tribute for Mothersday.
But moreso to yourself "MOM".
Well done Ruth. Your still getting better everytime I look.

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Hoot~
This is pure pleasure.
We mom's don't need much for our efforts ...
just a phone call, a hug, a kiss and knowing our kids are okay.
I certainly enjoyed this one, Ruth.

It's officialy true, angels are everywhere, they certainly don't all fly although sometimes the wounders that they do seem truly miraculess . Thanks to all the mums out there for keeping the world running as properly as possible . And if any of you angels want to borrow my wing so as you can fly then I'm charging 5.00 an hour ( sorry I don't know what that is in dollars !) .
